Car Analogy

Throughout our new book, Our Joint Decisions: A Patient's Perspective to Successfully Manage Joint Pain, Surgeries & Replacements, the analogy of our automobile is used in comparison with our own body.

For example, if we have a flat tire, we do not keep driving our car becuase it will destroy the wheel and tire and take the wheels, tires, and care out of alignment. With our body, we expereince pain in our major joints, for example our knees, and continue to walk, run, and even palysports, many times not seeking a diagnosis from our doctor. Pain in our body is a signal there is a problem that needs to be fixed, just as our car does with tires, engine, and other working parts.

In everyday life, if we do procrastinate and damage our car, we know we can always replace it. We only have one body, and we need to do everything possible to keep it top shape, fully reparied, and fine tuned so it will serve us well throughout our life.

There are many other car anologies that we define in other parts of this website. Bottom line: don't take your body for granted; get it fixed and live with pain-free mobility for the Highest Quality of Life.
